edible dandelion question

I've been eating wild dandelions for years, but recently I heard a horticulturist say that you shouldn't eat wild ones because they have some unhealthy substance... I can't remember what he said.

So, just for fun I've ordered "French Dandelion" seeds. They are also listed as Taraxacum officinale, which is also the genus and species of wild dandelion, right?

So, is "French Dandelion" a different variety?

I would appreciate any comments on eating cultivated vs. wild dandelions.

Thanks.
